ISRAEL TO BOMB IRAN? I agree with Allison Kaplan Sommer that this story is being overhyped. The Israelis may decide to bomb Iran — though it seems to me that way too many people are hoping they’ll do so and thus spare the rest of us some tough decisions and tougher tasks — but I’m pretty sure that if they do they won’t leak it first. They didn’t leak the Osirak raid, or the Entebbe plans, or . . . . Well, you get the idea.

I’m sure that they’re making the necessary preparations in case they do decide to launch such an attack. It would be criminal not to. But that’s not the same thing.
